What is a Garden 2019

17 MAY - 3 JUNE 2019

 

 

Artist Caroline Schofield worked with two secondary schools in Co Waterford - Meánscoil San Nioclás, An Rinn and Coláiste Chathail Naofa, Dungarvan - on a project taking its inspiration from the historic gardens at Lismore Castle and exploring ideas around the purpose of a garden. Pupils considered Ideas about gardening and shared social spaces through a series of visual art workshops.

Students visited Lismore Castle Gardens in the Spring and explored their surroundings visually by making a series of drawings, both on paper and with found materials from the Garden.

These drawings went on to inspire discussions in the class room with the artist, where ideas for the final piece three dimensional piece were developed and trial runs were prepared.

The original drawings of the Gardens were the basis for the two sculptural pieces in the Lower Garden which are on display until June 3rd. The artworks will then be gifted back to the schools to be placed in a location of their choosing.

Works in the display in the lower gardens – open every day until June 3rd:

Oileán (Island) Meánscoil San Nioclás An Rinn , 2ndyear group. Bamboo Skewerds and spray paint

The Pink House Effect  Coláiste Chathail Naofa, Dungarvan, 4thyear group. Steel Frame wool and wire drawings.

June.
